Subject: Wounder what the actual Russian said
The animation is really nice, but the dubbing in this is horrid, I wounder what the Russian was actually saying, I bet there were some well placed remarks about communism and how we are all the same when it came to getting from Africa to Antarctica, and the wind storm was capitalism, but the English would not say that, because this was dubbed in 1959.
Subject: great animation
I thought that this was cute and a good clip for children.
Subject: Charming Soviet Cartoon
It would have been even greater, if Internet Archive also offered the original cartoon without the pathetic dubbing in English.
Subject: Stupid but, still cute.
The story was terrible but, it gives a sense of what Christmas was like for Russians over 60 years ago. The boy's (dubbed) voice was worse than wimpy; thank God it was just a cartoon...
I thought that the animation was actually quite good considering the era and the society being what it was. The characters were brain-dead but, you can't say that they didn't have personality.
Subject: Sweet little movie!
A nice Christmas present from Russia sweet enough to melt a Cold War heart! Loved Santa's starship!

Well, this was cute. The boys (dubbed) voice was a bit overly wimpy though. I thought the sputnik satellite was kinda novel.
